Details of another fundraiser for Classy Lane fire relief have been announced, and organizers have said "the Classy Lane fire can only be described as horrific. None of us in this industry ever want to endure a tragedy like that. It's our worst fear.”

The above quote comes courtesy of New England Amateur Harness Drivers Club President Billy Abdelnour, who has divulged details of the upcoming fundraiser in an article by The Sun Chronicle.

The March 26 event will take place at Plainridge Park Casino, specifically in the Boylston Room, which is located on the second floor.

The fundraiser is headlined by comedian Mike Petit, who has appeared throughout Las Vegas and on Comedy Central. The event has been organized by the New England Amateur Harness Drivers Club, along with the Harness Horseman's Association of New England, Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts and Plainridge.

The event will kick off at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 8:00 p.m. Tickets, which are $20 each, can be obtained by contacting Plainridge’s racing services manager, Lenny Calderone, at 508-576-4482 or via email at [email protected].

"The New England harness racing community wants to do whatever we can to aid our brothers and sisters to the north," Abdelnour has said.
